. the president is cutting his vacation short to face the fiscal cliff. is he leaving hawaii for washington tonight. if lawmakers don't come up with a deal before the deadline your tax refund could be delayed by months. we are live in the washington bureau to explain more. >> reporter: brian the irs said without a deal as many as 100 million taxpayers may be forced to wait until march to file their tax returns. congress has to vote on the wealth tax and it needs to be adjusted for inflation. both partisay they would agree to it but it's all tied up in the fiscal cliff mess. tax filing season starts next week but the irs would put a hold on that for some. officials would wait for a deal in the new year instead of doing serious reprogramming to their tax system. filing would then be pushed back to march for millions. with refunds coming much later than usual. especially for those who plan on paying off credit card bills that often pile up after the holidays. now all of this could be avoided a deal before the deadline monday night but some long time lawmakers fear it won't happen, more on that

keilar joins us live from honolulu, hawaii. so a slight bit of news. do tell. >> reporter: i hesitate to even say it's a slight bit of news because it's sort of exactly what we would expect, to be honest. the white house is talking about senate democrats about what senate majority leader harry reid will have to cobble together when the senate reconvenes on the 27th and that's really the last-ditch effort. it's seen as the senate trying to do something that can also pass the house, so this is exactly what you would expect. the real problem though is as of this morning, just a week out from when the fiscal cliff is expected to hit. there's no discussions between congressional democrats and congressional republicans even on the staff level. this is what democratic and republican sources are telling me, and overall just to remind people, instead of this being -- here's what we expect. instead of this being some big bill to try to deal with the long-term fiscal health of the country which is what the fiscal cliff was supposed to be an incentive to do, we're expecting now that this is just

expired. for what purpose does the the gentlewoman from hawaii rise? without objection. ms. hanabusa: madam speaker, when chairman bernanke first coined the phase the fiscal cliff he was describing the perfect storm. the fiscal cliff is not only sequestration, the impact of the budget control act, but also includes not limited to the expiration of the bush tax cuts, the unemployment insurance, the s.g.r., the a.m.t. patch, the debt limit, other tax provisions . ergo, the perfect storm. major issues that this republican controlled house will not address until the wealthy are protected. we must address a sufficient number of these provisions to avert the perfect storm. to do so we must work to building the public confidence so we can continue, continue steady growth in the economy and jobs. the true way to avert the cliff. this is why we must do what is best for the middle and working class first. extend the bush tax for the middle class,, tend unemployment insurance, s.g.r., a.m.t. patch, delay the sequestration. those items which we can all agree upon. we've got to get to work. thank
